I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Vozel, but I know Jackie, and if that is any indication of her character and personality, then I feel like I have been blessed with a touch of her. Jackie, you and your family are in our prayers.

Florentine you were such a pearl in my life. You taught me many things and influenced my love for all sorts of antiquities. You made amazing PB & Js for me when I was young. You knew how to have fun and enjoy life. Your love for the outdoors is inspiring. You loved your animals dearly and spoiled them greatly. Some days I reflect and feel as though I'm walking in your shoes. It is such a honor to be your niece. When I think of you I smile. Thanks for the warmth I felt from you. Your loving niece
